In every community, there is work to be done. In every nation, there are wounds to heal. In every heart, there is the power to do it.
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our Light, not our Darkness, that most frightens us.
You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure about you. We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.
Fill you mind with the meaningless stimuli of a world preoccupied with meaningless things, and it will not be easy to feel peace in your heart.
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
Forgiveness is not always easy. At times, it feels more painful than the wound we suffered, to forgive the one that inflicted it. And yet, there is no peace without forgiveness.
We are not held back by the love we didn’t receive in the past, but by the love we’re not extending in the present.
We can always choose to perceive things differently. You can focus on what’s wrong in your life, or you can focus on what’s right.
